emerging and talented Lithuanian artists and provide a wonderful opportunity to showcase their work and

demonstrate the Lithuanian Attitude at a top Mayfair Location. 10 artists have been selected with art ranging

such as painting, sculpture, performance, interior design, photography, textile, graphics and etching also

with a performance on site during the exhibition. We have 7 female artists and 3 male artists and over 30

artworks for the exhibition. There will be an art talk during the show with some of the artists being present

A word from the curators:

Mara Alves: 'This will be not only a great opportunity for the artists to show their works but also to the viewers

that will have the chance to see on site the potential that so well conveys the development of Lithuania

culture to the present-day. I commend Valius Naureckas and Vida Naureckaite for this fantastic project. '

Barry Martin: ' It is always of great interest to see contemporary works of professional artists from abroad.

However, we often see art works in London from the USA , South America and from countries in the European

Union who are close to the British Isles. We rarely see contemporary art works from countries further afield

such as Lithuania, and this is where this exhibition is different, as it brings 10 contemporary artists from that

country to be shown in London for the first time . I look forward with great expectation to this exhibition.'
